That's what I was thinking!

Until I saw the video, and maybe even after, I would have to try that with someone else car or truck !   For our GTs I think it would be great. I see the one in the video is battery operated. Would make it nicer for the shop.   Thanks for sharing. Roger.

A Ralph Nader-mobile!

 

Nader came to prominence in 1965 with the publication of his book Unsafe at Any Speed, a critique of the safety record of American automobile manufacturers in general, and most famously the Chevrolet Corvair. In 1999, a New York University panel of journalists ranked Unsafe at Any Speed 38th among the top 100 pieces of journalism of the 20th century.

Back in 1967 I had a 1965 Corvair Monza with a Spider engine and a 4 speed.. The motor was kind of ragged out and passed oil badly. Back then you could buy " Oil firing" spark plugs.  It needed them badly. Every once in a while I had to get a quart or two of Clorox bleech and clean the engine out. Now I worked at a gas station pumping gas just outside our home town. When it was slow I and a friend would park the car in front and do a " Cleaning job " on it. Now if you have ever done this you know how big a cloud of dense white smoke it can make. Well I got warned several times by al the police around the area. I had to stop doing it there because it would cover the raodway and traffic would almost come to a halt.  A State Trooper told me next time he was going to tow my car to the impound.  I started doing it at home after that.

Even with the ring problem it was astrong running car. I could bring the front wheels off the ground in first from a stop and nearly off the ground in second. I sold it to get the downpayment on a 1968 Camaro RS.   My favorite car.  Thanks for letting rember this car with you.   Roger.

Interesting lift. No way I would trust it though.

Mine was a 63 Monza and it would bark the tires in the first three gears and I beat several chevy V8's through the so called Quarter mile in my home town. I always had to  stop, turn it off and put the fan belt back on afterwards though. Had a lot of fun with that car. :bounce:
